Youth Tennis classes at Jaycee Park stared in June and, despite the hot summer days, continue in July. The Youth Tennis Program is free and offered at a variety of public parks throughout the year by Houston Parks and Recreation Department in partnership with the Houston Tennis Association, Inc. The program is designed to provide children with the fundamentals of the game of tennis and educational components that develop life skills.
Summer II runs from July 3 – 27. There are no classes on July 4. No pre-registration is necessary, however, you may register online at www.houstonparks.org. No new registrants are accepted after the first two weeks of each session and class size may be limited. Equipment is available for use during class.
Classes at Jaycee Park, 1300 Seamist, will be in the mornings, Monday – Thursday. There are three separate class groups, based on age.
Classes for beginner students focus on fun-based instruction while advanced beginners will enjoy an emphasis on learning. Students already playing tennis at an intermediate level will focus on skill development and match play.
While your students soak in the fun on the tennis court, you can enjoy some of many amenities at Jaycee Park. There is playground equipment and a cooling splash pad for the little ones and exercise equipment, an outdoor track and basketball for all. See you in the park!
